Drying And Storing Corn
This could be a challenging year, with corn moisture varying throughout a field.
The 2013 corn crop may be a challenge to dry because of great variations in moisture from kernel to kernel. Drying may reduce the overall moisture, but not the variation, which can only be resolve with airflow through the grain. Because of the cooler air in October, reduction of moisture will take longer, since the cooler air moving through the bin will absorb less moisture. The grain can be kept over winter at a higher than desired moisture, if it is cold, but will present issues that need to be addressed when the air warms up in the spring."
